Forum 74 STEM Event
On Thursday May 17th, the AHS-Vertical Flight Society Phoenix Chapter hosted a STEM day for High School/College students at the Phoenix Convention Center. Dr. Kendra Befort, The Boeing Company, presented engaging insight into the history of automation toward autonomy and the influence it will have on future vertical lift. The students were escorted throughout the AHS-VFS Forum Exhibit Hall where they spoke with college and industry representatives and tried their hands on multiple vertical lift simulators. After lunch and a debrief, feedback from the students was exceedingly positive with several of them now influenced to pursue vertical flight careers and to join Arizona State University’s Vertical Flight Society Student Chapter.
Special thanks to Joanne Baker, The Boeing Company for leading and organizing the event!
